Here to Slay is a competitive role-playing fantasy strategy card game
that's all about assembling a party of Heroes and slaying monsters (and
sometimes sabotaging your friends too) from the creators of Unstable
In this game, you’ll assemble a full party of heroes to slay dangerous
monsters while working to avoid the sabotage of your foes. The game also
includes items you can equip to your heroes, 1V1 challenge cards, and
roll modifiers to tip the odds in your favor.
HOW TO PLAY
The first person to successfully slay three monsters, or build a full
party with six classes, wins the game!
Every player gets to choose a party leader character to represent them
throughout the game. Each party leader card has a class and a skill that
gives you an edge over your opponents. Whether you enjoy fighters,
bards, wizards, or thieves, you'll find a party leader that's right for
your play style - but choose wisely, because you only get one party
leader for the whole game!
Your heroes are brave adventurers, ready to attack monsters and go head
to head with your foes! The game includes over 40 unique heroes. Each
hero card has a class and an effect, and each hero’s effect has a roll
requirement. In order to use a hero’s effect, you must roll two dice and
score equal to or higher than that effect’s roll requirement.
Everyone wants to be a hero, but are you brave enough to face off
against these monsters? If you successfully slay three monsters, you win
the game, but attacking a monster may come at a price. In order to slay
that monster, you must roll two dice and score equal to or higher than
that monster's roll requirement.
Be warned: Each monster has a roll range in which they’ll fight back,
and if you score within that range, your party might be in grave danger…
Item cards are enchanted weapons and objects that can be equipped to
your heroes to bestow them with special advantages and skills. Most
items give beneficial effects and are meant to be equipped to heroes in
your own party, but a handful of items, called cursed items, can be
equipped to enemy heroes to give them disadvantages.
What would this world be without a little magic and mayhem? Magic cards
are powerful spells with a one-time effect. Some magic cards can give
you great advantages, while others are designed to set your opponents
Don't like what your opponent just played? Throw down a challenge!
Challenge cards can be played instantly to try to stop another player
from playing a hero, item, or magic card. Playing a challenge card
initiates a 1V1 challenge in which you and another player both have to
roll the dice. If they win the challenge, they still get to play their
card, but if you win the challenge, you get to send their card directly
to the discard pile!
Only fools rely solely on luck. In this game, you can keep a modifier
card up your sleeve (or, well, in your hand) to make sure the odds
always tip in your favor. Modifier cards add or subtract from the final
total of any dice roll. Whether you need to recover from a low roll or
sabotage the high roll of an opponent, modifier cards can be a handy
tool when luck doesn't seem to be on your side.
